There is a dedicated tag : highway=trailhead.

You might want to read more information on the wiki, for example starting with this page.

Looking at your editing history, I see that trails in your area are weirdly tagged. Usually the trails names are in relations, of type route=hiking for example. Also there is a route=mtb tag on some paths, that tag is meant only for relation.

Note that mapping a trailhead as such just means "this is a recommended place to start/finish the route". If there are facilities at that trailhead - for example, toilets or car parking - you should still add those individually.
